! I too have the same problem with Afterstep and RedHat.  Kind of Annoys
! me.

! If there is a good sized grop maybe some teamwork and a Mini-Howto would
! be in order.
! I am up to working with any of you to help fix this problem.  One nice

! parts that annoy)
! and perhaps suggest a change in procedure for the folks in NC.
